I studied chemistry in Erlangen and started research on carbon catabolite regulation in Bacillus megaterium in my diploma thesis. During my PhD thesis I was concerned with quantitative analyses of protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions of CcpA, in vivo- and in vitro-characterization of point mutants of CcpA and coeffectors and I contributed to the structural analysis of different CcpA complexes. During a postdoctoral appointment I focused on interaction analyses of PrfA, a regulator of ...
